A Warm Welcome from Dr. Bailey and the NRDC Team!
North River Dental Care
Meet Our Team
Dr. Ryan Bailey
My name is Dr. Ryan Bailey, and I am excited to introduce you to North River Dental Care! We are a gentle, soothing, and comfortable dental practice dedicated to excellence and serving the Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania, and surrounding communities!
I earned my dental degree at the VCU School of Dentistry, where I was named to the Dean’s List for outstanding academic achievement. I also received several awards for high quality of care and conscientious attention to detail, including the Quintessence Publishing Company Award in Periodontics (healing gums and bone), the Teledyne Hanau Waterpik Prosthodontics Award(rebuilding smiles), and the Academy of Osseointegration Outstanding Student in Implant Dentistry(replacing missing teeth).
Because ensuring that you receive the most up-to-date, state-of-the-art dental care is very important to me, after dental school I chose to take my training to the next level and completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency at the University of North Carolina. I also regularly attend post-graduate dental training courses and maintain memberships in many professional associations, including the Academy of General Dentistry and the American Dental Association.
Over the years, I’ve had the opportunity to practice dentistry in different areas of the country and learned many methods to care for my patients. But when it came time to “put down roots,” I decided to return to Virginia, and I am very happy to be home.
Creating and maintaining fine dentistry is a joint effort – something we can work on together. As your dentist, I will make every effort to listen to your dental wants, determine the best way to combine them with your dental needs, and care for you in a reassuring, gentle manner.
If you have experienced fear or anxiety during a previous visit to the dentist, you are not alone. Lots of people feel that way, and it is perfectly okay! The good news is, it can get better, and you can get the smile that you want and deserve! Helping people overcome their fear of the dentist is one of my favorite things to do!
The NRDC team and I are excited to meet you! You can learn a little bit about the whole team by reading below. Come in and experience the NRDC difference – we’ll help you and your family create beautiful, healthy smiles for years to come!

Rachel - Dental Hygienist
Rachel grew up on a farm and is very down to earth. She has called many areas of Virginia “home” over the past 14 years, including Richmond, Ashland and Staunton. She is relatively new to Fredericksburg area and is enjoying discovering all the hidden gems the area has to offer.
Rachel is constantly honing her craft and consistently stays on top of the latest advancements in dental hygiene. Patients frequently comment that they’ve never had such a gentle, thorough, cleaning!
